While I do think that Buster Keaton was a genius,I can't help but think that Lloyd's "The Freshman" was probably 10 times better.
This is a funny movie and as usual contains some dangerous stunts,but it just doesn't live up to the other classics.
It's fun to watch,I especially liked the part where Buster pretended to be a black guy,but if you're not yet into this man's work,maybe you shouldn't check this out FIRST.

The best of the Keaton movies in my opinion
The most amazing part of the film is how athletic Buster is. All through the movie he keeps acting as if he's an athletic klutz, but he keeps accidently doing something marvelous. His deadpan humor is quite engaging, as is his air of pathos, characteristic of comics of the time. Overall a very good film with a unique story. Enjoy!
